Auckland Transport wishes to engage a specialist consultant to undertake condition inspections and prepare forward works programmes and project feasibility reports for its Metro Structures and Facilities including: Metro interchanges, Rail fibre optic network, Rail stations, Rail depots and stabling yards, Bus stations, Busway facilities, Bus shelters, Ferry facilities (marine structures), Wharves and Carpark buildings.
The contract will be managed by the Asset Management & Systems team (AMS) and amalgamates the current Wharf and Ferry Facilities Professional Services contract with the Train, Bus and Carpark Professional Services contract, which both expire on 30 June 2017.
The AMS team is part of the Auckland Transport (AT) Assets and Maintenance Group. It creates and maintains asset management plans for all AT managed assets based on accurate data and forward works programming. The AMS manages the inspection and monitoring of the condition of the assets and determines a prioritised programme for scheduled maintenance, renewals and improvements.
AMS has identified the need for improved asset management planning across the entire life of each asset. This shift to incorporate whole of life maintenance with replacement planning is creating a demand for better quality data and programming. Creating a replacement suite of contracts gives the opportunity to incorporate lessons learned from existing arrangements and to adjust and improve these contracts. Contract restructuring is part of several wider organisational and process improvements at Auckland Transport.
This RFP is one of a group of 6 tenders being undertaken simultaneously to replace the full suite of Asset Management Professional Services contracts in use by the AMS team. It enables a modified strategy for work grouping and an opportunity to introduce new technology to the contract.
AT values a long term relationship with its suppliers and the resultant ability to deliver consistent quality outcomes within a complex environment. In recognition of this, the contract’s term will be set for 3+1+1 years, with the contract extensions subject to Suppliers' performance.
